Food-Grade PE Recycling: Effect of Nanoclays on the Decontamination Efficacy

Abstract : Although PE-based nanocomposites are gaining interest within the food packaging industry for their outstanding functional properties, their end-of-life has been poorly studied. The lack of identification of such materials suggests that they could end-up in the recycling pathway optimized for the decontamination of un-filled PE. The objective of the present work is to understand and quantify the mechanisms involved in the high temperature desorption of surrogates for PE nanocomposites filled with organo-modified montmorillonite (PNC), compared to conventional PE. An original experimental setup was coupled with a modelling approach to identify the two phenomena involved in the decontamination process: diffusion of the surrogate into the bulk and its evaporation at the surface. A sweep of experimental temperatures enabled the determination of diffusion and evaporation parameters for PE and PNC and the activation energies related to the diffusivity among those two materials. The effects of the introduction of clay nanofillers onto the decontamination process have been explained and recommendations for the recycling pathway have been put forward
